I use this due to suggestion from other TT posters. In hot steamy Florida cover the boat just like you after day(s) on the water and have no mold.

Its not a true dehumidifier but it heats up and the fan cycles on and off.

I use a house dehumidifier in my motorhome. I live in Oregon, where it rains 7 months out of the year. I get a gallon a week out of my motorhome during the winter.

In my boat I let it dry out completely before i winterize. I put in two large buckets of damp rid (from home depot) cover it with my sunbrella cover and cover that with a good tarp. That seems to work for me, I have never had any mildew.

There are home dehumidifier's that you can adapt an external hose to. You could run it out your drain hole so you don't have to dump the container.

Breathable Sunbrella cover and fan set on low. It just needs to keep the air moving to aid in drying, does not need to blast hard.

Timer would not be a bad idea. Have it cycle on for 6-8 hrs during the afternoon as things heat up.
